By on July 29, 2015

Hindi Translation: बिजली की खपत और आकार के अनुसार भारत के दस सबसे अच्छे रेफ्रिजरेटर

There are multiple types and brands of refrigerators or fridges available in the market today. Everyone wishes to be informed before making a buying decision of a refrigerator. Most sources on the Internet provide details on features and reviews. Electricity consumption hardly becomes the deciding factor. To help people make electricity consumption as deciding factor, we at Bijli Bachao have decided to put up a list of Top Ten refrigerators in India by electricity consumption and size.

Top Refrigerator
  • The basis of this ranking is the data from BEE (Bureau of Energy Efficiency). BEE data contains yearly electricity consumption of a refrigerator and this information is self reported by the manufacturers. The data is calculated in test conditions.
  • We have taken the data on electricity consumption and categorised it by the capacity or volume of the refrigerator. The refrigerator with the least value of units/lts is given the highest ranking. Multiple models with the same value are given the same rank.
  • The list below contains only the top ten ranked refrigerators. List of all BEE star rated refrigerators are available on the useful links given below.
  • Use the ‘Add to compare’ icon to compare the monetary value of the units available from BEE based on your tariff from your electricity provider and your usage.
  • Please note Direct Cool refrigerators are single door refrigerators and Frost Free refrigerators are multi door refrigerators.
  • We regularly update this list as new models get added in the BEE list of refrigerators.

Hi

I am looking to buy a Frost Free Refrigerator. We are a family of 4 – all vegetarian. One thing that we are looking for is a triple door top mount refrigerator. Ideally having a BEE 5 star rating and has an inverter technology. I do not have any choice for the brand. The more economical, the better it is. Please suggest the most ideal one matching these requirements or the nearest. Thanks in advance !
